i'm in the process of installing a Fedora Core 2 (K12LTSP) box  at this 
very moment to try out Centre 1.2 (open-source School Information System 
app).  FC2 LOOKS really slick.  Nice eye-candy.  Very professional 
looking OS.

I noticed that FC2 comes with Mozilla 1.7 and Gimp 2!  That's awesome!  
I'd like to put those on my Production Servers running RedHat8.0.  And I 
thought the easiest, fastest way would be to simply upgrade from RH8 to 
FC2.  I am wrong in this thinking?

What are the Pros and Cons of upgrading from RH8 to FC2?  Remember this 
is for two Production Servers, not Experimental Servers.
